Official ASMT series Discord server planning thread!

Postby Rockythechao » 5 months ago

We've already been aiming to open up A2XT Episode 2's dev documentation to the community alongside the release of the devkit, but we previously weren't planning to make a dedicated Discord server until planning for Episode 3 rolled around. All things considered, though, we're overdue for one -- the AZCT, MaGLX3, and JUMP teams have had their own servers for a while (edit: apparently not AZCT, my bad!) and we even made a perfectly-repurposable server for the old GURP game's development that's just kinda sitting there collecting dust.

But this shouldn't just be a server for A2XT2. Discord is a flexible platform and the ABCD canon is more than just the SMBX games! Let’s consolidate things into a single place where, in the spirit of the open and transparent collabs that started this series, the entire community can follow along and participate in the discussions and development process of every ASMT series game from here on out:

the A Superb Discord Thing server (tentative name)!
:demo: :iris: :kood: :rao: :sheath: :pal: :catplanet:

For the basic structure of the server, these are our initial ideas:
    • A main channel group for your usual server rules, general discussion, showcase, memes and so on. Also a channel for series-wide resources such as the ASMT wiki, raocow's art of the characters, links to previous games’ LPs, and tangential/supplemental materials like ATXS.
    • Each game project can get its own group with channels for different aspects of development based on the project's needs: for example, Ep. 2 would probably have ones for source control updates, testing, writing, design, graphics, audio, programming, general discussion, and external documentation.
    • When the server is ready the link should be publicly available in this thread, and everyone who joins should be able to view every project's channels with the possible exception of per-project opt-in roles for more spoiler-heavy channels. Posting in the server should require basic verification (to prevent spambots and such) and project teams could further restrict posting permissions for certain channels in their group based on specific involvement-related roles: A2XT2 Developer, SDS2 Contributor, AMMXT Level Reviewer, etc.
    To be clear, we'll still be working to push the Episode 2 devkit to completion alongside these discussions and the resulting preparations. Ideally we'd like to launch the server together with the devkit's release, but we've been saying it's on the final stretch for a while now. If it's still not ready when the server is is, we won't hold off the latter to wait for the former. Either way, A2XT2's development will be completely migrated to this server, so if it comes down to that, everyone will be able to see the devkit's to-do list and follow our progress on it!

    So with all of that said, let us know what you all think about this proposal and don't hesitate to share any questions, concerns, or suggestions!

    An update on this point: after careful consideration we've decided that it would be best to require verification to view most of the channels on the server. We feel this extra layer of security will be important for keeping the server safe and civil once it launches, but rest assured that we'll aim to keep the verification process quick and simple and anyone who just wants to follow along with project development will still be more than welcome to lurk after getting verified.

    News to me! But I'd definitely welcome a big ol' collab server, if only to get the poor Thing some airtime.

    In other words, this is a cool proposal for sure. Even just for the ease and speed of contacting people on related projects.

    UPDATE: As mentioned in the THE PLAN thread, we're looking for folks to join the server staff and help us push this thing through the last stretch of the pre-launch preparations!

    Any folks who are interested and have community moderation experience please get in touch with us through either the discordhaus, codehaus or spotzone server, Discord DM, or PM here on the forums.
